Saturday Sweets

Please sign up here

For the price of a few hours of babysitting, your child can learn to bake! In a two-hour class each Saturday, we explore the science and art of baking–and make tasty treats to bring home. Hands on baking activities encourage confidence, creativity and safety in the kitchen. The classes are lighthearted, but baking requires concentration and precision. Participants should come ready to focus, and get messy!

Please contact me for specifics about the location: info@sweetsandbitters.com

I post recipes from previous classes in the Recipes section.

Salons with Kate Galassi

"Forager" Kate Galassi envisioned a series of monthly salons where her friends in the creative, culinary and performing arts could come together to create atmospheric themed evenings. I collaborate with her on producing and serving food and cocktails. Recently, we built a forest of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in a TriBeCa loft for an evening of acoustic music, and hosted a candlelit Prospect Park Picnic highlighting favorite farmers’ and foodmongers’ summer best.
